Tag Heuer is a very well known Swiss watch manufacturer and while it’s widely known for its mechanical watches, the company has also jumped on the smartwatch bandwagon. It appears to have received a good response for its first Tag Heuer Connected Android Wear smartwatch and later this year it’s going to come out with a new one. Tag Heuer chief Jean-Claude Biver has confirmed that the company is going to launch a new smartwatch powered by Android Wear 2.0 in May this year.
He confirmed this in an interview with Neue Zürcher Zeitung. The company is going to start producing its new smartwatch next month and is formally going to launch it in May 2017.
Jean-Claude Biver also confirmed that the smartwatch is going to be powered by Android Wear 2.0. It’s the next major platform upgrade for Google’s wearable device OS. Android Wear 2.0 itself is due to be released next month. Several new smartwatches powered by the new platform are due to arrive this year.
The technical details about the new Tag Heuer smartwatch haven’t been revealed as yet but the chief did confirm that it’s going to be available in two different sizes. It’s also going to carry the prestigious “Swiss Made” label since its processor will be made in Switzerland. The company received the license to do this from Intel in December last year.
